So I came back to the game after an extended break to find that I don't really have any useful/desirable jobs. NIN has totally failed to keep up with other jobs' buffs, PLD is now lacklustre outside of high-endgame which I don't do any more, and BST/PUP were always lol'd. I'd like a job that people don't go 'oh... don't you have anything else?' to >_>;
I feel I should probably level a pure DD job, and I'd like to know what the pros/cons are for WAR vs. say, DRK/RNG/MNK these days. I'd probably be looking at using this job for exp/merits/abyssea, pickup events like assault/nyzul/mission fights, maybe some dyna/limbus, maybe some lowman NMs and stuff. WAR shares more gear with my current jobs, though I have H2H merits already from PUP that MNK could make use of. Something that's useful without ridiculous gear would be good - I have gil reserves, but would find it hard to fight higher tier ZNMs/VNMs or HNMs.
Or I guess I could go the other way and level SCH/BLM - would a magic DD be more useful for these sorts of situations? Should I just suck up the stigma and make my own groups for stuff rather than level a whole new job?
